So, the cops nab you in some felonious act and you’re facing possible hard time — what do you do?
Confess? Plead the 5th Amendment? Call your lawyer?
Police say a New Mexico man did one better: He snitched on his own mom.
Vaughn Godwin, 27, arrested over the weekend on suspicion of vandalism and possession of methamphetamine, allegedly tried to wriggle off the hook by offering to turn his mother in to police. The Albuquerque man told investigators that dear old mom was selling marijuana out of the house they shared, police said.
Officers had responded to a call from Godwin’s home to find walls at the residence spray-painted and smashed. Godwin told officers he trashed the house because his mother refused to give him money and his medications.
Then he told police where mom was stashing the pot.
Albuquerque police told the Los Angeles Times that although many suspects struggle to make deals with investigators, turning in your own mother isn’t common.
